I guess it is time to auction off some punch cards now ... one at a time
:). Actually, I am toying around with putting one punch card on ebay just
to see what would happen. It is a bit unusual though in that it is imprinted
with "Leo Computers", and just to keep it a set, perhaps putting one sheet
of original Leo Computers stationary. Anyone here remember Leo Computers
(late 40's, early 50's)?
